  Rezumat:  The aim of this paper is twofold: to address the role of the mass media in Britain in the context of their relationship with the Establishment and to examine the way in which this is reflected in and influenced by their coverage of violent events, a case in point here being Northern Irish violence. The paper will include general considerations of the role of the press in contemporary society according to different approaches used in media research. The way in which the audience is acted upon will be considered briefly (as well as the degree to which this happens), together with some of the criteria that determine the selection of news used to influence the public. The analysis of the relationship between the mass media and the Establishment focuses on the degree to which there can be talk of interference from the government as to what issues can or cannot be discussed by journalists, in particular those related to violence against the state. Moving on from theory to specific examples, the coverage of violence (the Northern Irish conflict) in the British media is addressed, as well as the consequences it has had upon the media – state relationship. Violent actions are some of the most mediated topics and the study of the methods used in the process offers an insight into the ‘biases’ of British journalism.
